May Day began in the U.S. in 1886 as a nationwide general strike, led by
immigrant workers, fighting for the 8 hour work day. While celebrated
across the globe, it has been largely ignored in the U.S., until recently,
when immigrant workers revived it.

Now, a new chapter in the history of May Day was written with the
involvement of Occupy Wall Street, the organization making history with
its public encampments and protests against the global financial community.
And, Building Bridges presente! We were there for this new chapter in the
movement, reporting from May Day events throughout the day, here and
from rallies across the country.

Wel spiced those events with commentary and analysis on the struggles of
the working class in the midst of capitalist crisis and prospects for change,
from leading champions of the working class, who build organization and
class consciousness.

Occupy with Building Bridges as we acknowledge the blood, sweat and
tears of workers, the workers who really create all the wealth and want it
back. So, lock arms, unite and fight for the working class, for the 99%.
Build bridges this May Day.
